Tropical Kuujjuaq sweats past hottest May ever

As we wrap up the first "team building" part of our trip, we read the local news in the plane going from Iqaluit to Resolute. Actually there is a full page on Climate Change in the Nunatsiaq News of June 27, 2008:
Last month Kuujjuaq (northern Quebec) experienced its warmest month of May since community weather records were first taken in 1947...
On June 17 the high temperature reached 27.9ºC making Kujjuaq the warmest place in Quebec... the normal temperature is between 2ºC and 12ºC... :(((
